From the October 1936 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Is hard the way? Does error flaunt its claim With sickness, lack, discouragement, or shame? Do friends desert and trusted ones defame And cherished hopes turn ashes in the flame? Have selfless gifts been spurned? Is blame Returned for consecration to His name? Oh, then, rejoice! For great His love of thee. These tests of faith are opportunity To prove thy God, to learn humility, To grasp the truth and shake the fetters free.
